What's up with that?

The iPad is a year or so older than the phone device but for the longest my text messages showed up on both.

Then it stopped and given my crazy work schedule and a move from one city to another over the summer, I'm not really sure when.

Both are on iOS 9.1

Messages are set to "keep forever."

Thanks in advance for any insights.

On your iPad: is your telephone number checkmarked in Settings - iMessage - Send & Receive?

On your iPhone: in Settings - Messages - Text Message Forwarding, make sure the iPad is enabled.
